Default RE: C50 V C90

I am also a newbie trying to decide on either a C90 or C50. I was originally leaning towards the C90...but thats only because I want something that is calm and comfortable at freeway cruising speeds over long distances. If the C50 is able to do that too, then I would welcome the huge decrease in MSRP. How does the C50 feel on the freeway?

I ride an M50, I'm 6' 300# and my bike has no problems at freeway speeds. I took it on a road trip over Memorial day weekend to my brother in lnlaws house in Wenatchee, Wa. I live outside of Portland, Or. I covered 750+ miles that weekend. Finally topped out my bike climbing 6000 ft passes, at 80-85 mph. I hope that's enough speed and power for you to compare with. On flatter areas I still don't know how fast it will go, cause most of the time I stay at 60-65.

Could the C50 handle speeds of around 75 comfortably? Or is it gonna be screaming and vibrating?

Really...really tough decision here.

When I had it topped out going uphill, I don't believe the engine was maxed out, if there was a sixth gear I believe it could've gone faster. 70-75 on regullar roads is effortless. Even carrying my big butt around. I've had it up to 90, engine purring and no vibration worth noticing. This bike is one well put together machine. I've ridden myfriends Harley tour model. Even at highway speeds it has more vibration than the my Suzuki m50.

Hi There,
I am definately a newbie to motorcycles, but here are my two cents.
I purchased a 2007 Boulevard c50, and have ridden a little under 1,400 miles on it to date. I can say that I have hadno problems on the highways....I cruise around 80 miles per hour daily (to keep up with traffic), and the bike does just fine. However, that being said, I have no other biking experience to compare it to....so I have no idea what difference if any more weight or higher cc's would have. But keep in mind, that I am a 100% self taught rider, and as such was an incredibly nervousrider, and am grateful that the bike did not give me any reason for concern. All in all I am completely satisfied with my purchase, and do not feel any slower or sluggish vs. other riders I see on highways. By the way, I too am 5'10 and weigh 240lbs.
Good luck!
